Food Sovereignty: through the lens of rewilding

  • Nezinscot Farm 284 Turner Center Road Turner, ME 04282 United States (map)

This free lecture is open to the public and will examine some important aspects of food sovereignty, including access, nutrition, and disease prevention.  These topics will be viewed initially from a historical viewpoint to establish the biological norm for human communities.  From there, strategies for developing personal and regional food security will be discussed.  While many believe a focus should be placed on waging legal battles with large corporations, such victories may not lead to increases in food sovereignty.  We are currently witnessing the outcomes of a passive approach to food autonomy in this country.  In contrast, developing a realistically attainable authority over food will require people to actively engage in developing traditional ecological knowledge and learning politically incorrect nutrition.  This presentation is supported, in part, by Anaskimin.
